The application of high-intensity ultrasound to silicon backbone polymers, particularly polydimethylsiloxane and polyorganosilanes, is described. There are advantages in using ultrasound in both modifying the molecular weights or end-group structures of preformed polymers and accelerating the course of polymerization reactions.
